Fairfield, CT, November 17, 2017 – Voice Express Corp. is excited to note that the US patent office has published our application for Multimedia Keepsake System and Method. Filed in 2014, we realized very early on that gift-givers and music lovers now have access to an infinite supply of their own and their friends User Generated Content (UGC) which can be used to create personalized gifts and gift accessories. We call this Voice Gifting™.
Geoffrey Stern, Founder and CEO noted “We were always told that it’s not the gift, it’s the intent that matters. Modern e-commerce and mobile-commerce has made gift-giving so much easier, but now for the first time, gift givers will be able to incorporate the songs they love, the music they’ve created and media content they have shared or “liked” into their gifts to express their true emotions and capture the moment.”
Imagine a Bouquet of flowers, or a box of gourmet chocolates delivered with an electronic keepsake that plays the music of your first dance along with your personal voice dedication! Whether a consumer purchases a gift using their PC, their smartphone or a voice Assistant such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home, now all you need is a voice to make your gift uniquely special and meaningful.
According to the patent application,
… modern online social media technology and platforms make it possible for a keepsake giver to easily access content for the multimedia keepsake that has been shared by or collaboratively created with friends or amateur artists wishing to share their creative content. Users of social media platforms post and share high volumes of user generated content (UGC) some of which is simply content such as music, images or video which the user curates or combines in a creative manner. It is an object of the present invention to provide a multimedia keepsake creation system which offers a keepsake giver the ability to incorporate content from social media platforms and other sources into the content of the keepsake.
As we move forward in turning this concept into a reality we invite prospective shopping platform partners and content providers to collaborate and help us forever change the way gifts and merchandise are exchanged.
